You heard the story here on w-k-t-v thanks to my to marek bush yeah increible story - i had the pleasure of talking to marek bush sophmore central valley academy student who showed good sportsmanship during a wrestling match.
Yeah increible story - i had the pleasure of talking to marek bush and his dad about he essentially took the loss after his opponent dislocated his elbow.
What was really cool = marek was featured on cbs tonight, on "on the road with steve hartman."
In case you missed the story - bush's finals opponent - indian river's logan patterson - held a commanding lead - when he dislocated his elbow.
After that - everyone expected bush to complete the comeback win over an injured patterson - but that's not what happened.
With the final 30 seconds of the match ticking away -bush - did something not many kids would do - he laid on the mat and allowed patterson to finish off the win he earned.
So a national spotlight for doing a good deed.
